Miranda and Dylan | Anniversary Adventure Session | Lava Beds near Sisters, OR

Amazing adventure engagement style anniversary session at the Oregon Lava Beds

The Bradley Family | Thurston Hills Natural Area | Springfield, Oregon

I first photographed this lovely couple when they were engaged. We did a cute engagement-style session right across from where I live (there's a cute little church with beautiful grounds covered by grand oaks). Then a couple of months ago this lovely gal approached me for a family session - they had a little boy! [...]

Life with Two Toddlers

If you know me personally, you know I have two very funny, bright, and adorable toddlers. If you don't know me... well, now you know. Life with two toddlers is crazy. Like, literally crazy-making, and some days I break out into my worst rendition of Ozzy Osborne. Some days, I can just ride the crazy [...]

Deep Woods Events | Elmira, Oregon | Glitz and Glam Styled Shoot

This styled shoot was inspired by old world luxury and glamour, with subtle hints of Art Deco flair. The cake, cake, escort cards, signs - and even a plum! – were adorned with gold leaf accents.

Baby Henry’s Birth

"May Laughter infect you; Your Passion resurrect you. May [...]

High School Senior Jenny

I remember that for my high school portraits, we chose one of three days to go to the school where the photographer had set up the "standard blue" background. Girls got their choice between a [...]

Nicole and Tom’s Meredith Manor Wedding

Early in the year in 2011, Nicole wrote me about photographing her wedding in Pennsylvania in September of 2012. At that time, Josh was deployed and we had about zero clue that we would be moving to Oregon. So of course I said yes. As soon as Josh and I knew we were going to [...]

Personality Galore

When taking portraits, I'm known for pushing people just a little more than they might be used to. In some cases, the person I'm photographing vamps it up even more than I could have expected (as if they were a model in a previous life). In some cases, the result is a portrait that is [...]
